Bad idea.   You should certainly not do an uninstall/install cycle, whilst
it *should* protect your shibboleth configuration there is evidence that it

You would be better to install a new tomcat instance (6.0.41) and copy the
specific configuration into it (from CaptiveTomcat6.0\conf: the files of
interest are server.xml and Catalina\localhost\idp.xml).  As you copy
server.xml you should review for it POODLE issues.

I know this is not as elegant as it should be.  This installer has moved
well out of its design space.  Things get much better in V3.
